Ancient British Rock Art

34 35 These images from the mid 19th century were originally printed using a specialist lithographic technique which employed a Balkan Limestone as a printing surface. It seems strangely appropriate that a stone process was used here to reproduce ancient marks made on stone. The designs, from Dod Law and Horton Moor, are complex, playful and varied. A vulvalike shape opposite top right, comblike forms opposite lower right and a splayedringed cup opposite lower left extend the range of designs we have encountered so far. It is hard to say quite what is going on here, and the reader may be forgiven for thinking that research has not progressed a huge amount since the time of the comment below If these markings be not Celtic it is difficult to say to what age they belong The Rev.
